Jung Society of Utah Weekend Workshop: Water and Grief
Jun 25 all-day
Jung Society of Utah Weekend Workshop: Water and Grief @ Kamas | Utah | United States

Weekend Workshop
A Water Ritual – Grief

Reserve your ticket here: http://griefritual.brownpapertickets.com
Grief is felt every time something contradicts our sense of humanity, separating us from our sense of identity; it is a dramatic event creating a crisis of the soul requiring reconciliation. Emotion is the most natural response and grieving has the same profound strength that love holds, in its shadow side. We are, however, conditioned to suppress and repress these powerful emotions and hold a stiff upper lip through adversity and pain. We have been told that time heals all wounds, and yet we carry a heaviness of heart. It is as though the grief holds us back from experiencing the lightness of spirit and our degree of participation in life.
We are at a critical juncture in our evolution, it requires full out participation to feel the freedom of mind, body and spirit again. Join us in releasing our grief through a community-supported ritual.

Date: June 25 and 26, 2016
Time: 9:30am – 10:00pm
Sunday :9am:-1pm
Location: 1050 South Fork Canyon Road (Five miles from Oakley, Utah)
cost: $250 (incl. camping, dinner / breakfast and drinks) Early bird discount $225

All Shook Up: Text & Image in Flag Books @ J. Willard Marriott Library, Book Arts Studio, LVL 4
Jul 7 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
All Shook Up: Text & Image in Flag Books @ J. Willard Marriott Library, Book Arts Studio, LVL 4 | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Free spots are limited; please apply using the provided url. The application deadline is May 24. The foundation of Hedi Kyle’s deceptively small and simple book flag book structure is an accordion folded spine. Flaps attached to both sides of each of the spine’s mountain folds allow the artist to fragment and layer a number of complementary or contrasting images and narratives. When the flag book spine is pulled fully open, the fragmented images on the flaps come together to create a large, panoramic image. Participants experiment with complementary and contrasting text and images and discuss the effects of different spine and page dimensions, direction of motion, and which images are most successful. Students learn a tidy, non-adhesive method of covering boards and use a jig to facilitate quicker, more precise assembly. While this is not a computer class, digital printing and setting up Photoshop templates for pages, covers and spines is demonstrated.

Streamlined Style for Contemporary Leather Bindings @ Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4 | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Free spots are limited; please apply using the link provided. The application deadline is May 24. Learn a variety of decorative techniques for use on leather bindings. These techniques require minimal equipment and modest leatherworking skill, and some can also be applied to cloth or paper. Demonstrated methods include: backpared onlays, inlaid lines, stamping texture into leather, feathered onlays, Lacunose (abstract sanded leather collage), craquele, various inlay techniques, laminating a paper illustration for use as an inlay, various methods of creating sculptural boards, transfer of computer-printed onlay shapes from paper to leather, and laser printing on leather. Students’ completed set of four goatskin plaquettes together with a detailed handout are valuable reference for future projects. See examples of the techniques covered in this workshop here. Note: This is not an entry-level leather-working course. Students should have some experience with edge-paring and forming leather corners.
